GreenHunter/Roscoe Mills Injection Well Rally
Saturday October 31, 2015 10AM
Greenhunter, the company which seeks to barge frack waste on the Ohio River, is setting records for the amount of out-of-state frack waste they are injecting underground in their Meigs County injection wells. With much of the oil and gas industry in financial trouble, with plummeting stocks, and investors getting scared, it’s a perfect time to add to the Halloween ambience by letting Greenhunter know that Southeast Ohio Residents are ready for them to cease and desist! RIP. Join us for a sign making party on the evening of October 26th, and then a rally on the morning of October 31st.
WHAT: FRACKING IS FRIGHTENING RALLY. Cider and donuts provided. We will stand with gravestones representing the disastrous results of corporate sponsored chemical contamination (C8, Love Canal, Clyde, Ohio, Bhopal). We will wear black, and paint our faces as skulls. It is Halloween, after all!
WHEN: SATURDAY, OCTOBER 31, 10 AM (expected to last only a few hours, drive time included)
WHERE: 33 BETWEEN CO 124 AND TWP 371 (BETWEEN THE HOTSPOT AND THE RAVENSWOOD BRIDGE).
MEIGS CARPOOL MEET AT THE HIGH SCHOOL 42091 POMEROY PIKE AT 9AM. ATHENS CARPOOL MEET AT THE COMMUNITY CENTER ON EAST STATE STREET, PARKING LOT UNDER THE SOLAR PANELS AT 9AM. FROM THERE WE WILL CARAVAN OUT TO THE ROSCOE MILLS INJECTION WELL IN MEIGS COUNTY.
Please let us know if you’d like to come, but need a ride, so that we can match you with a driver.
THIS IS NOT A CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE ACTION, AND NO ARRESTS ARE EXPECTED.
GRAVESTONE MAKING PARTY:
WHAT: Join members of AR! to paint gravestones for the rally. Paint, brushes, and cardboard provided.
WHEN: Monday, October 26th. 6 PM to 8 PM
WHERE: Shagbark Seed and Mill, 88 Columbus Circle, Athens, OH
If you can only come to the rally, but not the sign making party, that’s perfectly fine! We will make extra gravestones.
RSVP so we know how many donuts to get!
WE HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE!
